Floors Castle

Floors Castle is a vast mansion a mile or so northwest of the town of Kelso. The bulk of the building was designed by William Adam in the 1720's, and despite some Victorian modifications, the interior still demonstrates his uncluttered style. Ten rooms and the basement are open to the public, with highlights including paintings by Matisse, Augustus John and Odilon Redon. 
The beautiful gardens include a woodland walk, adventure playground and garden centre, and you can eat at the Terrace Cafe and Restaurant. The Castle Kitchen Produce shop sells a range of foods produced on the estate.
